The Congress has expelled 13 members in Assam, including a sitting MLA, who had filed their nominations as independents following denial of party tickets to them for the forthcoming Assembly polls.

The rebels have been expelled for six years for anti-party activities, Assam Pradesh Congress committee media cell chairman IP Hazarika said.

Those expelled include Karimganj MLA Siddique Ahmed, Sanjay Raj Subba from Naoboicha, Samsul Islam from Hailakandi, Kaliram Deka from Morigaon, Swapan Kumar from Lumding and Tusheswar Neog from Golaghat.

Osiram Doley from Majuli, Umesh Gogoi from Thowra, Samujjal Prasad Barua from Sonari, Nilosh Hazarika from Bihpuria, Paramananda Doley from Chabua, Durgeshwar Tanti from Dhemaji and Pradeep Buragohain from Nahorkotia also feature in the list.

Hazarika said the party would not tolerate any anti-party activities and had therefore decided to expel members who were contesting as independents.
